The Oakland Athletics aren’t the most attractive MLB organization due to their extremely out of date ballpark and low payroll, but they’re hoping their new ticket plan will help attract more people to the ballpark next season.

The A’s will become the very first MLB team to sell season tickets that won’t be attached to one particular seat. Instead, the team is introducing a new program called A’s Access, which will give fans the option to buy ticket packages that don’t include the same view for every game.

Fans will have the option to purchase 10-game, 24-game, half-season or full-season plans. Packages include entry to every single home game during the regular season, with free seat upgrades available, as well as half-price concessions, parking discounts and 25% off merchandise at the team shops.   

This is a pretty awesome initiative by the A’s organization and it’s one that all diehard fans will truly appreciate. We don’t expect teams like the New York Yankees or the Chicago Cubs to follow the A’s on this one, but it’s a good idea for teams that do have some attendance issues throughout the year.
